Forbes magazine has named Rollins’ Crummer Graduate School of Business the top MBA program in Florida in its biennial ranking of the nation’s best business schools.

For the second time in a row, the Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business has been ranked the No. 1 MBA program in Florida and the No. 51 MBA program in the nation by Forbes magazine.

The biennial rankings of the country’s best business schools are based on Forbes’ in-depth research, which prioritizes a student’s return on investment five years after graduation. The Forbes survey asks graduates from all MBA programs to evaluate the cost of getting an MBA, including any salaries that were forgone while in school and the monetary rewards obtained after graduation.

“We are honored to be recognized as an institution that provides significant value for our students in terms of both career success and transformational academic growth,” says Deborah Crown, dean of Crummer. “Employers continue to seek out Crummer graduates who embody the school’s mission to produce global, responsible, and innovative business leaders who impact both their organizations and communities. This achievement also speaks to the high quality of our faculty and staff who continually deliver on our promise of excellence in the classroom and beyond.”

The 2019 rankings mark the 10th time Forbes has ranked the Crummer Graduate School of Business first among Florida schools. Known for its distinguished faculty, intimate class sizes, innovative programs, and strong alumni network, Crummer develops global business leaders and innovators through high-quality, experiential education.

“The Forbes ranking truly demonstrates the benefits of being a Crummer graduate in a diverse and changing landscape,” says Rollins President Grant Cornwell. “Our students are succeeding in a highly competitive global marketplace based on the skills, knowledge, and overall experience they received while at Crummer under the mentoring of faculty who are leaders in their field.”

Thanks to Rollins’ Accelerated Management Program, enterprising students can earn a top-ranked undergraduate business degree and a top-ranked MBA in just five years.
